Telltale's The Walking Dead saga returns to Steam, now available on Nintendo Switch


Back from the dead

Telltale’s award-winning series The Walking Dead can now be played on Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam. Skybound Games has announced that all four seasons will be returning to Steam today, while the Nintendo eShop will receive seasons two and four of the tense adventure, (although there is no word of spin-off season, Michonne.)

Previously only the first and final seasons of the gripping episodic adventure were available on the Switch platform while, in contrast, Telltale’s catalogue was removed from the Steam storefront following the developer’s demise in 2018. The Walking Dead: The Final Season was only available on PC via the Epic Games Store or as part of physical compendium The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series. (It’s worth noting that in terms of “bang for your buck,” the Epic Games Store edition of Definitive Series is still the best value for your money.)

Switch and Steam fans can now relive the epic journey of Lee, Clementine, and AJ, as they pick their way through the miserable Walker apocalypse. While sometimes a little bland in player choice and interactivity, Telltale’s The Walking Dead recounts a great story of courage, hope, friendship and family, juxtaposed with grim and upsetting scenes of psychological torment and visceral horror.

Telltale’s The Walking Dead is available now on PS4, PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
